    Well, if that person is really good, it will do. The certification is nothing more than a statement saying that the translator posses sufficient knowledge of English and other language, and that the translation is true and accurate.

    It's all will defend on the charges. Don't panic. Hire an immigration attorney and a criminal one to make sure you can "clear" your record. If a conviction is not avoidable, your immigration attorney will guide you.

    If you are a US citizen, you can sponsor your mom for an immigrant visa. If there was no formal determination of fraud rendered, she will have good chances. Otherwise, she might need a waiver.
